There is usually a "waiting list" in operation and Blackpool residents are given priroityt.  An assessment of the support needs and capability of each individual is made before any individual is permitted to swim.  You can explain your circumstances when you make contact.  We will aim to assist and support you the best we can.

We aim to provide an enjoyable experience for everybody, but sometimes things may go wrong.  Any concerns about training or lessons should be discussed with the swimming teacher through the Head Coach.  Issues associated with operation of the swimming club or social activieis should be discussed with the Chair or vice Chair of the Swimming & Social Committee. If you are disatifised with the outome of these discusisons then contact a trustee prior to raising a Complaint.
